Welcome to RAC's Gallery
We’re open 5 days a week and admission is free. Winter gallery hours are 12:00-5:00 Tuesday-Saturday (closed Sunday and Monday in January, February and March).
Drop by our light, airy first-floor gallery to explore stimulating high-quality art that changes each month.
Stroll around … have a seat on our comfortable benches and reflect on the artwork … bring lunch to enjoy on our deck overlooking the scenic Five Mile River … meet our artists and other art lovers during the free reception for each exhibit and show.
During the course of a year we display diverse works in all media – acrylic, computer art, drawings, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography, prints, sculpture and watercolor. Download the 2013 Exhibition Calendar
Our goal is to provide maximum exposure for the talents of RAC members. Six exhibitions include 40-80 works exclusively by RAC exhibiting members … all members and the public have the opportunity to be juried into three other exhibits … and the first exhibit each year features artwork by RAC instructors and students.
